This book shows the original German camouflage of vehicles used by the Deutsche Afrika Korps, with color variants throughout the war. We look at German Army vehicle colours for the African campaign, including the European Dark Gray (RAL 7021) in which they arrived to Libya. This continues through to the initial camouflage colours, Yellow-Brown RAL 8000 with Green-Gray spots RAL 7008 (in 1941), and the Yellow-Brown RAL 8020 and Sand Gray RAL 7027, used from1942. We also include a selection of Italian vehicles, often forgotten, which fought alongside the Germans against the Allies from 1941 to1943. This is supplemented by the addition of allied vehicles serving with the Axis troops, with some curious American halftracks with distinctive German markings. Over 170 profiles cover schemes from the most common camouflage to the most originals and unusuals vehicles used by the DAK and Regio Esercito, including major artillery pieces used in Africa, highlighting above all the powerful 88 mm Flak 18/36/37. Through the 108 pages of thisbook, the modeler will find inspiration for next African modelling projects.

This new Super-Book, like its predecessors in this same series of technical manuals called “FAQ”, is dedicated to modeling military vehicles and the techniques used for assembling, painting and weathering.
The difference with the previous book is that we have moved on in the timeframe and this book is a complement of the previous ones. It also explains some new techniques that have appeared these last years, mainly to use in modern vehicles but that can be also used in vehicles of all eras. The most complete book for military vehicles edited until now. The materials that make up modern vehicles and weapons have changed considerably since World War II. Materials that were out of the question on a technological and industrial level back then are now commonplace. The use of these new materials and the manufacturing and assembly methods reflect on the way we paint and weather these models; they require a different approach. Like many other things in life, in the end the purpose is to take up new challenges. In this book we present some of those challenges.
Simply essential for the modeller of military vehicles
